PU NENG Energy has been awarded a contract for construction of a 12-megawatt per hour vanadium flow battery as Phase 1 of a larger 40MW/hour energy storage project in Hubei Province. It is a major milestone for Pu Neng, a leading vanadium flow battery manufacturer, and also represents significant value to Canada’s Sparton Resources, whose 89.8%-owned subsidiary VanSpar Mining owns 18% of JD Holding, which owns Pu Neng.

Pu Neng Energy is installing a Vanadium Redox Battery (VRB) in Hubei Province.

The first phase is being installed in Zaoyang integrating a large solar photovoltaic system into the grid. When phase 1 is completed early this year, Pu Neng’s Vanadium Redox Battery (VRB) will be the largest flow battery installed in China.

Following the 10MW 40MWh project, there will be a larger 100MW 500MWh energy storage project that will be the cornerstone of a new smart energy grid in Hubei. This large project will serve as a critical peak power plant, delivering reliability and emissions reductions.

As part of the initial agreement, Pu Neng and Hubei Vanadium will jointly develop a vanadium electrolyte supply from local vanadium sources, helping revitalise the local industrial base to meet future demand for energy storage.

This type of project is a glimpse of the Chinese electricity grid’s future as the country is halting construction of many coal-fired power plants and pushing the integration of renewable energy with energy storage.

On 22 September 2017, the China National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) released Document 1701, ‘Guidance on the Promotion of Energy Storage Technology and Industry Development’ aimed at accelerating the deployment of energy storage. The policy calls for the launch of pilot projects, including deployment of multiple 100MW-scale vanadium flow batteries, by the end of 2020, with the aim of large-scale deployment over the ensuing five years.

“We are delighted with Pu Neng’s progress this year,” said Sparton’s CEO Lee Barker. “All of the staff are to be commended on achieving this milestone in PuNeng’s development as the VRB manufacturer of choice for the energy storage industry.”

Pu Neng chairman Robert Friedland said, “China has the largest and highest-grade vanadium resources in the world and is poised to use this miracle metal to fundamentally transform its electricity grid. With massive amounts of renewable energy and storage coming online, China will create the most modern, clean and efficient grid in the world.”


全钒液流电池合同

能能源公司已经获得一项合同,在中国湖北省建造一个12兆瓦/时的钒液流电池作为一个更大的40兆瓦/时储能项目的一期。这对普能来说是一个重要的里程碑,普能是一家领先的钒液流电池制造商,这对加拿大斯帕顿资源公司来说也意义重大,斯帕顿89.8%控股的子公司VanSpar矿业有限公司持有JH控股公司18%的股权,普能属于该控股公司。

一期安装在枣阳实施,集成一个大型太阳能光伏发电系统。随着今年早些时候一期工程实施完成,普能的钒电池(VRB)将成为在中国安装的最大的液流电池。

一个更大的100兆瓦 500兆瓦时的储能项目将在10兆瓦 40兆瓦时项目后进行,这个大型项目将会成为湖北省智能电网发展的一个基石。该项目将作为一个关键的峰值发电站,不仅稳定可靠而且可以大幅减少排放。

作为初始协议的一部分,普能和湖北钒业将利用当地丰富的钒矿资源,共同开发钒电池电解液,发展当地钒电池产业,以满足未来储能产业的需求。

这种光储用一体化项目是未来中国电力系统格局中重要的一环,因为中国正在逐步停止建造燃煤发电厂,并推动可再生能源与储能系统的结合。

中国国家发改委(NDRC)2017922日发布的1701号文件《关于促进储能技术与产业发展的指导意见》,旨在加快储能项目开发部署。这项政策要求启动试点项目,包括2020年年底前实现100兆瓦规模全钒液流电池储能项目的落地,以实现未来5年内大规模发展的目标。

我们对普能今年取得的进展感到非常高兴,”斯帕顿的首席执行官Lee Barker先生表示。“对于实现普能发展中的这一里程碑,所有的员工都将受到表扬,因为在储能产业选择了钒电池制造商。

普能的董事长Robert Friedland称,“中国拥有世界上最丰富、品味最高的钒资源,利用这种神奇的金属将从根本上改变中国能源结构。随着大量的可再生能源和储能项目的发展,中国将建造一个现代、清洁、高效的电力系统。”
